Plastics Recycling Show Europe 2019 (PRSE 2019) opened in Amsterdam this morning where European Commissioner Kestutis Sadauskas gave his full support to efforts carried out in making plastics circular.

Plastics waste had a prominent place at this year's Davos gathering of business and political leaders, and at least for a few of the CEOs involved, there was some hope that the next decade could see real progress.
German association for plastic packaging IK (Industrievereinigung Kunststoffverpackungen) and its French counterpart Elipso have welcomed a recently announced “alliance to end plastic waste” as an important step in fighting marine litter.
